Next to None: Heavy Metal Prodigies

nexttonone

The kids in Next to None are young enough to still be considered prodigies. The band members are about 15 or 16 years old, which I’m sure makes people feel old.

All of that being said, they are really remarkable. They write their own music too, which is becoming rarer these days.

Their sound is a little progressive, a little hard rock, a little heavy metal. It’s all good. It’s better than good really. I am totally blown away by how mature their sound is. Hopefully, their voices maintain a similar quality after puberty is over.

Next to None will have their first album, “A Light in the Dark,” out any day now.

Next To None includes Max Portnoy on drums, Ryland Holland on guitar, Kris Rank on bass, and Thomas Cuce on keyboards and lead vocals.

P.S. Remind me to hide my daughter when they come to town. I know, I know, I should take her to the show.
